The bladed glove worn by Johnny Depp in Edward Scissorhands is up for auction and expected to sell for up to $50,000.

The mechanical prop was used in the movie’s iconic scene when character Edward used his blades to turn an ice angel into a snow flurry for Kim, played by Winona Ryder.

It has gone up for auction after Amber Heard mocked fans for believing Depp actually had blades on his fingers after losing $8million in a defamation trial in which she accused the actor of sexual assault. 

During the sit-down interview, which was pre-recorded on Thursday after the actress flew into New York on a private jet from Washington DC, Heard accused the jurors in the trial of being duped by her ex-husband, branding him as nothing more than a ‘fantastic actor’ who ‘convinced the world he had scissors for fingers’, in a bizarre reference to his performance as Edward Scissorhands in Tim Burton’s 1990 movie.

The glove on sale is described as showing ‘extensive wear and aging on the foam rubber element’, but already three online bids have been placed – the highest at $20,000.

The dangerous-looking glove is up sale with auction house Propstore and will be going under the hammer in Los Angeles this month.

Earlier this month, a jury ruled that Heard defamed her ex-husband by publishing a piece about being a sexual assault survivor in the Washington Post. 

She was ordered to pay Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages, although the second payment was reduced to $350,000 per Virginia law by the judge. 

She was awarded a relatively paltry $2 million in compensatory damages, meaning that Depp, 59, walked away from the case with Heard owing him $8.35 million. 

Other horror movie items also up for grabs in the same sale include jackets from vampire classic The Lost Boys, expected to sell for up to £95,000.
